Steroid Scrap Alert: Todd Duffee vs Alistair Overeem for Dream's "Dynamite 2010"?

"Have no plans on NYE?! Dream Dynamite 2010 : Duffee VS Overeem on HDnet!!!"
     -Todd Duffee, via Facebook.

Todd Duffee recently took to Facebook, announcing a possible meeting with 2010 K-1 world champion Alistair Overeem at Dream's New Year's event "Dynamite 2010." The bout has not yet been confirmed by FEG, Dream's parent company, however the unofficial announcement has generated a much needed buzz for the promotion. While the Japanese MMA scene is struggling to stay afloat, Japanese promotions, particularly Dream, are scrounging for any means of survival. This year's usually popular New Year's event has been a challenge for Dream, as they have been extremely late, locking in last minute bouts for the evening's card. Although many fans are skeptical, a fight between Duffee and Overeem could be the maker (not breaker) that the Dynamite NYE card needs.
